    OK now, Who remembers a place called the Pie Pan that I believe was right off the Edens at Peterson? I have fond memories of pie ala mode.

    This is turning out to be a very nostalgic post.

    Southwest corner of Cicero and Peterson. Little white fence running around the entire joint. Fairly good pie from what I remember...

    Right across the street from Johnston's (Amazing fried chicken on the SE corner)?

    New member here (grew up in Glenview in the '60s) - I definitely remember Aunt Jemima's on Dempster in Skokie; double doors in front with a large round carved (on a lathe) wood handle in the center - one half for each door. Upon entering I remember the main dining area was off to the left, all wood-paneled and Early American style (where my family ate), and to the right, a more formal dining room with off-white walls and tablecloths (we never ate on that side!). I vaguely remember the lady playing Aunt Jemima, but mostly I remember the silver dollar pancakes, or more often, pigs-in-a-blanket! I also remember them closing the place around 1967 because we went there one night and it had been changed to a steak house called The Bum Steer. My mom said, "Well, that sure is a bum steer!" and we left. In later years we got our pancakes at the Golden Bear; either the one by Randhurst or the one in Deerfield.

    I have fond memories of the Golden Bear on Lake-Cook in Deerfield. My parents took us there for breakfast after church sometimes. I loved the multiple syrup bottles on the table, but always picked the blueberry. Or was it boysenberry?

    The Pickle Barrel was at 1423 N Wells. It was opened in the early 1960s by Leo Osher, who later owned Barnum & Bagel (also discussed above).

    Thank you for that picture, and thanks to everyone for reminding me of The Pickle Barrel. My family would go to one over at Howard & Western. I had totally forgotten about that place. What a neat place it was.
    Help me out with this one. At the Pickel Barrel, was there a huge treasure chest that kids could take a prize out of at the end of the meal? Or was this some other place, maybe also in the Howard/Western area?
    I hate kettle cooked chips. It takes too much effort to crunch through them.

    My dad used to take us to the Pickle Barrel -- we loved it because you could throw your peanut shells on the ground, but I remember they also had very good burgers there. I also recall there was one in the former Park Forest Plaza when we moved (farther) south, but it wasn't as good as the one in Old Town.

    I also have fond memories of Bowl and Roll. They had a variety of soups and fresh breads. Friends of ours used to take us there frequently, and we would try all the different soups and try to decide which was the best. I still think a good bowl of soup with some fresh bread is a terrific meal.

    I have vague memories of them in the suburbs. I thought there was one in Northbrook, and maybe elsewhere.
